Caution: You are now annotating this song as

I came upon a child of God
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, "Where are you going?"
And this he told me...

I'm going on down to Yasgur's Farm,
I'm gonna join in a rock and roll band
I'm gonna camp out on the land
I'm gonna get my soul free

We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden

Then can I walk beside you?
I have come here to lose the smog
And I feel to be a cog in something turning

Well maybe it is just the time of year
Or maybe it's the time of man

I don't know who I am
But you know life is for learning

We are stardust
We are golden
And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden

By the time we got to Woodstock
We were half a million strong
And everywhere there was song and celebration


And I dreamed I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky
And they were turning into butterflies
Above our nation


We are stardust
Billion year old carbon

We are golden..
Caught in the devil's bargain

And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden

(To some semblance of a garden.)
